Abstract

A lensed photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is proposed as an effective element for an optical free-space interconnector. By simultaneously forming a beam-expansion region and a focusing lens on a single piece of PCF, effective coupling between PCFs could be achieved. A long working distance of up to 1mm with wide longitudinal and lateral tolerances was measured. The optical characteristics of the lensed PCFs and the connectors made from them are analyzed experimentally and theoretically.
